Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 7/13/84 and a Question of '77

I came across 7/13/84 and saw the Dark Star encore, how often has this happened? It's a nice version to listen to.

And, is there a bad show from '77? So far, the ones I've listened to are either utterly fantastic or they are mind-blowing phenomenal.
It seems like every review I read from a '77 show says that it is easily top 10 for the year.

Dark Star is in Set III of 12/31/81 but this may have been the only "encore." As for '77, no meatball shows and naturally a plethora of standouts. As for the lunar eclipse, I thought I read there was also a shooting star seen during the playing of Dark Star that night ...the whole greek run from '84 is must have material.

I actually downloaded that show the other day, it's next in line in the car after DP 19. I just finished listening to the Morning Dew, pretty stout version, it brought a big smile to my face. I have been trying to get my brother on the bus and I haven't come up with the perfect show to give him. I think I'm just gonna lay that Dew on him and if he doesn't get it, then he probably never will.

Thank you very much. Hang loose.
Hey, why they doggin' you on those other threads/posts?

glad you liked that one - ive been hooked on that for that past 10 years - maybe not the best, but certainly my favorite.

I have no idea why i am being dogged all of a sudden. i used to be pretty antagonistic at times (not to the regulars though) - have no idea what i did this time though - oh well - somehow i must have deserved it :)

good luck with your bro!!!

Hey now,
being THE Dire Wolf will attract snippy dogs, Jack Londons White Fang from Chapter 23 >>

"Go to it," he said to White Fang.

But White Fang could not believe. He looked at the master, and he looked at the dogs. Then he looked back eagerly and questioningly at the master.

The master nodded his head. "Go to them, old fellow. Eat them up."

White Fang no longer hesitated. He turned and leaped silently among his enemies. All three faced him. There was a great snarling and growling, a clashing of teeth and a flurry of bodies. The dust of the road arose in a cloud and screened the battle. But at the end of several minutes two dogs were struggling in the dirt and the third was in full flight. He leaped a ditch, went through a rail fence, and fled across a field. White Fang followed, sliding over the ground in wolf fashion and with wolf speed, swiftly and without noise, and in the centre of the field he dragged down and slew the dog.

With this triple killing his main troubles with dogs ceased. The word went up and down the valley, and men saw to it that their dogs did not molest the Fighting Wolf.

Of course, direwolf is a peaceful and fun loving wolf, but the dawgs remain the same

I also loved Bambi and The Wind in the Willows-lol (well, in the 3rd grade) then i graduated to Fantasy & Science Fiction in High School. Think I'll re-read White Fang, it's my favorite Jack London book.

Like I said before, the post space of this gig is possibly the best 40 mins the band has put together. Ripper of a watchtower to boot

I think it's popped up in a few "set 3's". Don't hold me to this but I think they did DS as an encore on this night because of a lunar eclipse or something to that effect. Someone else might have more info on this

first DS since 12/31/81 and last until 10/9/89...not often enough!

can't confirm the lunar eclipse, but one review states;

"This show was played on a Friday the 13th with a Full Moon. Supposedly this was the first time this had happened in 200 years."

Boys anted to do something special for Friday the 13th Lunar Eclipse. Was planned a few days ahead, word leaked out to some close to the know. People tried to get in from all over. This was the first night of a 3 night run at the Greeks

Next night encore - "Day Job"

I was there and am really glad I was "not in the know" since I got one of the great surprises of my years with the boys. After the second set, Phil steps to the mike and says something along the lines of "hang loose as we're going to try something special tonight" (those with auds can tell me exactly when it was and what he said - I'm going on memory). The boys come back on as a shooting star shoots across the sky while a big old full moon is sittng in the right hand corner over the Golden Gate from my vantage up on the hill (dancing in the paved corridor right below the grass). When Phil hit those first few notes, it was pure delight and pandemonium. One of my great moments at a show (as it was at Hampton when they broke out a ragged but momentous Box of Rain). Not a bad way to start a run that included Saturday, Sunday and then down the coast to two dates in Ventura (with some weird DNC moments in SF for the 84 convention in between).
